Pull/Tow Starting a RZR?

Seems like I read this on here but cannot find it.

Say you're in the woods and your starter or battery goes out. Can the RZR be started by towing hooking a tow strap to her with another RZR and pulling it or?

If anyone has successfully done this, please do tell on how exactly you did it.

Thanks!

Shouldn't work.
The secondary clutch can't make the primary engage to spin the crank.

We pull started him by hand when the engine wasn't bone-cold from the night before by wrapping a ratchet strap around the clutch. Do a search for 'pull start'. This start in the vid was getting pulled by a quad. Personally I wouldn't do this to my rzr. The guy on the quad pinned it. That's one hell of a YANK on the outside of the clutch. Pretty sure it wasn't designed for that.



Launch. Land. Repeat.

I carry a jump pack. Never needed it, but have a buddy that has tried to get way more time out of his stock than he should.
